The dazzling blue waters of Florida’s Ginnie Springs are ringed with cypress trees and calling birds. It’s beloved by local residents -- and home to rare turtles.
And Nestlé wants to suck a million gallons from Ginnie Springs every day for free -- to put in plastic bottles and sell for a profit. The area is already drying up -- this could be a death blow to the community’s water supply.
Local residents are doing everything they can to stop Nestlé’s dangerous water grab. But this mega-corporation has deep pockets and lobbyists that are trying to drown them out. That’s where you come in.
Local officials have said they’re paying close attention to growing public outrage. But many local people still won’t have heard about the threat from Nestlé.
If you chip in today, you’ll buy ads in towns near Ginnie Springs alerting people to the threat, and asking them to submit a public comment. Local officials will be flooded with thousands of emails demanding they kick out Nestlé and protect community water before it’s too late.
Will you chip in to protect natural springs from Nestlé’s greed?
